Researchers use many different methods for conducting scientific studies. Each of these methods has its own advantages and disadvantages that make it appropriate for certain situations and unsuitable for others. In order to identify which method would be most beneficial for which research scenario, it is important for the student to fully understand the pros and cons of each method. A professor may not have the time necessary to work with each student individually to fully understand each type of research method. Research methods tutoring allows the student to have that individual attention to ensure they are fully comprehending each research method. A research methods tutor could provide examples of scenarios in which each method could be used. A tutor can also provide examples that are related to the student's interests. By relating the information with things the student already knows well, they may be more likely to remember the information for future use.
